Keynote speaker

Gethin Mon Thomas – Bangor University.

We are excited to have Gethin agree to present at this year’s conference.

Gethin is an independent consultant working within in the fields of education, health and wellbeing, and physical literacy informed practice. Gethin also teaches at the School of Sport Health and Exercise Science, Bangor University specialising in physical literacy informed practice and physical education pedagogy and has presented at several International conferences. Gethin has extensive experience of working in an advisory capacity with special, primary, and secondary settings.

Movement and physical activity has been designed out of everyday life.  Physical Literacy provides a conceptual framework from which we can challenge our policies and strategies, teacher and coach behaviour when providing opportunities and creating a safe environment for movement and physical activity.  Gethin’s keynote presentation will start by introducing Sport England’s recently published Physical Literacy consensus statement.  Gethin will begin to unpack the concept, focussing on what Physical Literacy is as well as what it isn’t and will explore ‘why’ and ‘how’ we can nurture children and young people’s relationship with movement and physical activity.
